Howard County executive Ken Ulman was recuperating at home Monday after surgery Friday to cauterize an artery in his nose that ruptured, causing a massive nosebleed, according to Kevin Enright, his spokesman. The 35-year old executive had scheduled this week off before the incident, his second attempt to take a break since a February family vacation was canceled due to the heavy snowstorms. Enright said Ulman returned home Saturday, after two nights at Howard County General Hospital.

No one will argue that the Orioles' offense could use a bit of a boost. Whether two men who joined them Thursday in batting practice could provide it is a different conversation entirely. Former Orioles Harold Reynolds and Brady Anderson were in full uniform yesterday before the Orioles' 3-1 loss to Houston, with Reynolds taking his hacks in the batting cage and trying to regain his late-80s All-Star form. Reynolds, now an MLB Network analyst, will broadcast today's Civil Rights Game in Houston.

Former Baltimore County Executive James T. Smith is one of the final candidates in talks to become Gov. Martin O'Malley's new transportation secretary, according to several people familiar with the situation. The job has been vacant for more than a year, but an appointment to the post will likely be made soon, an administration source said. Smith, who left office in 2010 under term limits, is a partner in the Towson-based law firm of Smith, Gildea & Schmidt. He also serves on the board of directors of the University of Maryland Medical System and the Board of Visitors of the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center.

Take 10 is a series of occasional features on prominent local residents and the possessions they treasure. Having - and sharing - adventures is the main theme in the life of Jim Seay, the 53-year-old president and owner of Premier Rides, a Baltimore-based company that makes theme park rides. The items he treasures most reflect that, whether it's one of his many past Super Bowl tickets or the photo commemorating the time he spent floating in zero gravity with famed physicist Stephen Hawking.

Now that life insurer First Executive is a basket case, having filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization, what are the next insurance nightmares that short-sellers are dreaming up? I checked with a short who specializes in financial scams -- he had been screaming for years that First Exec was headed for trouble because of its junk-bond holdings and his message is: "Junk bonds are going to seem like Sunday School compared with commercial real estate."This short, who doesn't want to be identified, isn't the only one talking about a looming commercial real-estate debacle in the insurance industry.

Executives at multimillion-dollar companies don't typically spend their leisure time enduring mountain blizzards or desert heat. But Bryan Offutt and his team aren't typical executives. Under Armour's burly director of outdoor marketing spent weeks with the company's chief operating officer, Kip Fulks; Fulks' brother, Koby, a senior marketing manager at the company; and full-time hunter Jason Carter in pursuit of some of the largest animals on the continent on some of its most rugged terrain.

Gov. Martin O'Malley will turn to a longtime political ally, former Baltimore County Executive James T.

O'Malley is expected to announce the appointment of Smith, 71, on Wednesday. His selection ends a search that has continued for more than a year - since former Transportation Secretary Beverly Swaim-Staley announced her departure last spring.

As a retired employee of Anne Arundel County's Office of Information Technology, I read with interest your editorial about newly installed County Executive Laura Neuman ("A breath of fresh air," Feb. 27). Her resume is impressive and it appears she could be very good for the county. However, there are a few facts that should be clarified. Ms. Neuman said that "there was no computer" in her office when she arrived for her first day on the job. While she is correct, it should be pointed out the lack of a computer on the county executive's desk was because the previous executive didn't want one on his desk or anywhere else in his office.

Your recent article about the Hostess Inc. bankruptcy stated that the company blamed its closure on striking workers, but it failed to mention what else was happening as the company was trying to cut bakery workers' pay ("Hostess' shutdown prompts snack rush," Nov. 17). Indeed, while it was filing for bankruptcy, Hostess tripled its CEO's pay and gave significant salary increases to its top executives. That's some bad HoHo. Randi Hogan, Crownsville

Proponents of expanded gambling have enlisted four leading political figures — including Gov. Martin O'Malley — to make television ads assuring voters that the additional tax revenue expected to flow into state coffers will go to education. The 30-second spots aim to counter what is apparently an effective argument by opponents of Question 7 on the Nov. 6 ballot: That voters can't trust politicians not to divert the additional revenue away from the schools. The latest ads show O'Malley, Prince George's County Executive Rushern L. Baker III, Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett and and former Baltimore County Executive Jim Smith telling Marylanders that if they stop the flow of gambling dollars to neighboring states, the money will be used in the classroom.

Editor: It was with some confusion, I found myself upon reading about Mr. Craig's opinion concerning government jobs. Was it not he smiling at those photo ops sometimes with shovel in hand promoting all those opportunities from BRAC? Were those smiles genuine or phony? I now see the Exec opposes the Plumtree expansion of Walmart because of traffic and public safety concerns, but he supports 400 trucks a day operating on a one lane road in Joppa. He has no concern what so ever for traffic or safety concerns of that public.
